    Double Status Credits promotion (Book by 27/2/24, travel 28/2/24-14/2/25)

    To double check, if you make changes to your booking via Qantas Reservation phone line, but your PNR is still the same - does the overall trip qualify for the DSC offer? This is in regards to changing 1 section of the flight to an earlier time slot. Cheers

    Double Status Credits promotion (Book by 27/2/24, travel 28/2/24-14/2/25)

    You are right - complete brain fart on my part 😅 Initial look at it and I went "this seems similar to Google's Price Guarantee" https://support.google.com/travel/answer/9430556?hl=en

    Double Status Credits promotion (Book by 27/2/24, travel 28/2/24-14/2/25)

    Say you've booked during the DSC (when prices where somewhat inflated). Now these same flights and class are lower - does the price promise kick in? This is for booking on the Qantas website itself of course. https://www.qantas.com/au/en/qantas-experience/why-qantas/price-promise.html

    TravelPro vs Samsonite soft shell checked luggage

    Refund/Replacement with these types of items usually requires the bag to be shipped at the owner's cost - and can be a pretty penny depending on when/where its sent. Having a local distribution/repair centre can cut such costs - I would like to ideally get these types of bags repaired if...

    Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options

    I agree - but I also had the pleasure of trying while I was there. Good opportunity to try the Chelsea lounge that's usually reserved for AA and BA First Class only. The cost of Flagship First is significantly cheaper than the cash trans-Atlantic fare ;)

    Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options

    US OneWorld flights are still quite a bargain if ignoring any DSC events. But aside from a select few that have 'Flagship First' configuration with AA, nearly all 'First Class' cabins by US carriers are considered 'J-class' when awarding points with QF and other OW members. One example of where...

    TravelPro vs Samsonite soft shell checked luggage

    Update on research: Although the Rimowa hard case is nice, it will not be able to handle some of the abuse that is planned for the upcoming travel plans. However, compared to other major players with the new lifetime warranty under LVMH, it could be easier to service. ~$50 to pay to undo all the...

    TravelPro vs Samsonite soft shell checked luggage

    Rimowa dropped its customer service and repair warranty honouring post LVMH acquisition, so it was a bit iffy getting them. Then, the justification of buying luggage that is the price of a return ticket to Japan from Australia. It's a shame that the TravelPro (or LuggageWorks) route is only...

    BA Avios subscriptions

    Did you transfer the Avios from BA to QR to do this redemption? Were you able to also book return tickets back? Excellent redemption overall!

    TravelPro vs Samsonite soft shell checked luggage

    Are there any lifetime warranty travel bags that are available here in Australia? RIMOWA and TUMI aren't really good options as they no longer have lifetime warranty on their bags.

    BA Avios subscriptions

    Is it more of a value to get the price in USD or GBP atm for the subscriptions? I am assuming you need a US address for USD rates.

    Oz Based Tier Point Run

    Try and take advantage of BA’s Double Tier points Holiday bookings. If you add flight + hotel or car for it and have at least a 5 day package (doesn’t have to be 5 days sequential, just within the booking) you earn double TP for your flights. Book by end of 2024 and travel’s been extended up to...

    Oz Based Tier Point Run

    That's a monster of an itinerary if I've seen one! I thought the best way was to sleep on the plane to get the J-class rest and refresh with shower at the lounges 🤣

    Double Status Credits promotion (Book by 27/2/24, travel 28/2/24-14/2/25)

    Just got the Qantas RED email for the NZ sale - a bit annoying that the price has dropped for OOL-AKL (1 stop MEL/SYD) by about $300 for J class (through Business Sale fares). Is this usually the 'premium' we have to expect to pay for when we do these kinds of options? Is there a better way to...

    Oz Based Tier Point Run

    How many TP do you get for this kind of associated trip? I am assuming you can get BAEC Gold with that itinerary. 4k GBP is around 8k AUD which isn't bad for that many segments of travelling.

    BA Avios subscriptions

    Is it worth getting the avios subscription even with the new subscription prices? Or have the BA and various Avios using OW partners tightened how Avios can be used?

    Strategy to obtain US Amex

    Are you trading spot currency to get the AUD to USD conversion as a method of FX? If it is indeed on the lower cost post-commission and fees for that method, then it is certainly more attractive than Wise and Revolut. It seems that they draw you in with the ease of use and once you're in the...

    Checked baggage allowance Qantas rewards ticket with American Airlines

    Congrats on reaching OWE! A word of caution with Oneworld and its alliance members updating their respective statuses in the back end of the system. AA tends to update at the end of the month/first week of the new month - so if you have recently gotten to Platinum with Qantas, it might not...
